The UCSF Chancellor’s Circle

The Chancellor’s Circle is a community of like-minded people who are deeply connected to UCSF’s core mission of advancing health worldwide.

Through their annual contributions, Chancellor’s Circle members empower UCSF to respond to urgent health care needs, fuel investigations on the forefront of bioscience, and sustain opportunities for the most exceptional social justice-minded students and faculty members. Circle members learn firsthand about astonishing innovations in health science at virtual events and discussions throughout the year. Now more than ever, we need you to help shape the future of health care.

In addition to the above, you will receive an invitation to UCSF’s annual donor event featuring compelling, interactive deep-dive discussions from our physicians, scientists, and educators that will illustrate the human stories behind UCSF.

At this level, you will also be able to attend the UCSF Academies – highly exclusive gatherings with academic, scientific, and philanthropic leaders in key areas of health including cancer, the neurosciences, and diabetes.
